Mortal Kombat 9 - So far, so good

For me the ultimate Mortal Kombat game (no pun intended), was Mortal Kombat Trilogy. Throwing in a mass of characters from the first three games to create one massive brawl fest. I remember never getting tired of the game back in the PlayStation days. But then the crappy Mortal Kombat 4 came out, followed by the supposedly improved sequels, which I thought were nothing like the first three games and just a dull fighter.But that all changes with the ninth iteration of Mortal Kombat. While it's still in 3D, the game is distinctly on a 2D plane like Street Fighter 4 and seems to be much closer gameplay wise to Mortal Kombat 3 then any of the previous attempts. The graphics also remind me of the original trilogy. All the old favorite characters will return I'm sure, with the game sporting a large roster and a cool looking four player tag-team mode as well. With series creator Ed Boon on board and a stellar trailer, maybe it wasn't so bad that Midway went out of business after all? Coming 2011 on PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out the trailer below!
